Nice location and good food

Enjoyed a meal here on my first trip to Jan Thiel, I had the Red Snapper and it came straight off the grill as a whole fish. This scared me a little but it tasted lovely. Service was a little slow, but we enjoyed the meal (bones aside) and could ask for a much better place to watch the sunset.

We arrived late with no reservation and sat in a booth with gorgeous views of the beach and sunset. We were close enough to the bar to hear the music, but not be distracted by it. The food was delicious, the staff were pleasant.

Though the restaurant was quite empty,we had to wait around 40 minutes to have a club sandwich and a burger...The Zest offers much tastier food!

Went there for diner. Within ten minutes we saw 4 different waiters/waitresses. After ordering we waited at least 25 minutes. The chicken had hardly any sauce, the fries were undercooked, which the chef-waiter admitted afterwards, but offered nothing to compensate as we did not eat it all and the tenderloin was well-done instead of medium. The desert was very good.... More

I stopped by here twice this year with family who resides on and are natives of Curaçao. The view and layout of Papagayo is Gorgeous! For my Birthday celebration in July, my family met me here for a breakfast brunch. The ambience, and stellar views were awesome. It's a fabulous place to simply catch some rays, relax and people watch.... More

We had dinner at the Papagayo in October 2015. The setting was really nice, and based on the price-range, we were expecting a special dinner. The food was OK, but I was expecting more from the lobster, and the mayonnaise on the carpaccio was masking most of the meat taste. We also had to remind the waitress about our cocktails,... More

Although it was a quiet night and the service was slow, the dinner meal was very good. Tried to get in during the weekend, but was impossible without making a reservation.

We came for the day from Santa Barbara. We selected chairs here because it was quiet and I liked the "infinity" swimming area. To access the beach proper, swim (or walk) to the end of the pool and go down the small set of stairs - there you'll see a packed beach and you can enjoy swimming in the ocean... More

Let me start with the place. Great views, nice beach, everything top notch and really clean and organized..... But the food and service.....dear employer. Employing young ppl that look good is cool, but maybe a little training? In less then 10 minutes 3 waiters turned up to take our order.....all 3 in Dutch...fine.... all 3 went away because we didnt... More
